I chose to draw this scene in the book because it represents how the people during this time had to hide, and how secretive everything would have to be in order to stay safe. In this drawing, it has a big pile of shoes covering a room big enough to hold 15-16 people. The people that hid inside there, I felt that they were somewhat lucky, for the situation they were in. But at the same time I felt bad for them because of how much they had to hide. I would imagine that this would not be easy, and i'm glad to be living in a time where people don't have to hide like they used to.


  1. Hi Anna!
    You are a really good drawer. I agree that it is terrible that they had to hide like that and I am grateful that we don't have to. I think they are very creative for hiding and making a bunker like that. The one thing I don't really understand about your post is the part when you said that they are somewhat lucky for what is happening. Do you mean that they are lucky because they got to hide in a bunker? I do not really agree with you. Overall, really good post!


  2. Nice drawing Anna. I really like that you explained what the picture represented! They definitely had to be very secretive while hiding there. I feel really bad for them too, they suffered a ton. I don't think I could ever put myself into their shoes. I don't really get how you said they were lucky for the situation they were in. What did you mean by that?

  3. Anna,
    I think you made great connection with your drawing and the book. I agree with everything you mentioned on your post. To start with, I agree that Vladek and those other 15 people who got to hide in their were very lucky. They had to hide in tight spaces for days and days, having nothing to do, with almost no food. Even though they were in a horrible situation like this, they were just lucky to be alive. And as you mentioned, I am glad that we don't have to go through all the things that Vladek and the others did back then. Over all, I really liked your post, but I think you should include why you thought Vladek and the others were somewhat lucky.
